FZ6R on the Track? Drag a knee?
I currently have a 1981 XJ750 Seca which I had for 3 years (first bike) and was thinking of getting the new FZ6R. I like an upright riding position and wanted a bike mainly for street use but that I could also take to the track. I know the FZ6R will not have the same capability on the track as a R6, but a salesman tried to tell me to not even take the FZ6R to the track. He did not think the bike would do well and said you would not be able to drag a knee.
This seems odd since Yamaha uses FZ6R's in some of there sponsered track events.
Has anyone taken a FZ6R to the track? How did it do?
I have never ridden a bike on a track before and was hoping this bike would meet my needs of a comfortable touring bike that was still able to do beginner to intermediate track days. I rode the FZ6R & FZ1 on the street and liked them both, but wanted to go with the 600.
Any insight would be appreciated.
